Identity Matters: Connecting Power, Privilege and Bias to Anti-Racism Work – September 27, 2023

September 27, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

This workshop has been designed for instructors who are interested in joining conversations about anti-racism and looking for an entry point to their learning journey. This session introduces fundamental concepts such as power, privilege, and positionality, and supports participants as they integrate these fundamental concepts into their teaching and learning practices. 

This session is a blend of asynchronous and synchronous components – you must complete the asynchronous module in advance of the workshop. 

Asynchronous Module (Mandatory Pre-Work) 

Canvas Module Link: https://canvas.ubc.ca/courses/73178

The asynchronous module is self-paced, and it is your responsibility to ensure that you complete the module before the synchronous session. We estimate the online module to take most participants approximately 2 hours to complete. 

The online module was designed to introduce you to some complex issues surrounding the concepts and theoretical frameworks of identities, power, and privilege. You will be presented with self-reflective exercises, informative activities and videos to help you explore and consider how identities, power and privilege intersect with your teaching pedagogy and your personal, professional, and academic lives. 

Synchronous Component   

For the synchronous component, participants will meet through Zoom and: 

  • Engage in conversation on concepts introduced in the module; 
  • Share their insights from the online module; 
  • Extend their learning into teaching and learning contexts. 

Our goal for this blended session is for participants to start exploring anti-racism in teaching and learning by reflecting on key concepts and understanding how these concepts manifest in various educational contexts. 

For any questions about this blended session or the pre-work, please email Nathalie Lozano-Neira (Nathalie.lozano-neira@ubc.ca)
